Wii U sales drop a little lower this week with none of its games in the top ten, which makes sense considering the time of year and that they weren’t any new releases. 3Ds and PS Vita sales are pretty decent but nothing special.

In the games section, Sengoku Basara 4 manages to debut at number one for both Media Create and Famitsu, pushing Kirby Triple Deluxe to the still very respectable number two slot. Saints Row IV debuted at number three in its first week, which is very surprising for a Western game in Japan. Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster dropped off the top ten spots, with both versions still holding on their top 20 rankings.
